Ethnic Rohingya protesters demonstrate against a visit by Myanmar President Thein Sein outside Parliament House in Canberra, Australia, on Monday, March 18, 2013. Many of Myanmar's most pressing challenges involve strife among its many ethnic groups, and that was reflected in Thein Sein's visit. About 200 people, mostly Muslim Rohingya, have died since June in violence with ethnic Rakhine Buddhists in Myanmar's western Rakhine state. Other Rohingya have died trying to escape Myanmar in rickety boats. (AP Photo/Rod McGuirk)
